‘Artificial’ Dolly PartonSunday, January 24, 2010 3:45 AM
Dolly Parton doesn’t want people to copy her infamous looks.
The 63-year-old country star – who is well known for her love of cosmetic surgery and famed for her huge breasts – admits she looks very fake, which can be a big turn-off for men.
She said: “I’m artificial. But it comes from a sincere place. And I ain’t telling people to look like me. I don’t say ‘Oh you need to have big boobs and overdo your makeup and have nine inch nails. A lot of men think I’m just too artificial, but there are some good ol’ boys there who don’t.”
The ‘9 to 5′ singer also revealed her image was inspired by a prostitute as she thought her look was very appropriate to her own lifestyle.
She said: “She had red nails and toenails and the hair and all, and I thought that’s exactly how I feel.”
Dolly – who is a famous gay icon – also added she doesn’t talk politics but does feel passionate towards gay people.
She said: “I’m not a poster child for gay rights by any means. But I have so many gay and lesbian friends and they’re just so pure and so true. That’s not politics to me, that’s human rights.”
